Rod Serling's seminal anthology series focused on ordinary folks who suddenly found themselves in extraordinary, usually supernatural, situations. The stories would typically end with an ironic twist that would see the guilty punished.

One of twenty-one episodes where the Midnight Society didn't leave and douse the fire with the water-bucket (the last shot was a close-up of the storyteller's chair and their picture that Kiki had just taken). See more »
In the beginning, Kiki's camera goes off five times directed at Eric, Kristen, Gary, Bet, and Frank before she takes a picture of herself, but she hands out six instantly-developed photos to the Midnight Society, including David, and in an intervention in the storytelling lays out seven, again with one of him.

Age ain't nothing but a number, and numbers can be manipulated.
This particular campfire tale centres around that idea that taking someone's photograph can somehow take their soul. It's a fun premise with a number of ridiculous moments that will have you struggling to suspend disbelief, but it remains entertaining enough that the flaws don't matter so much.
Maria King plays young Danny Sellman, a girl who goes on a holiday with her parents (Don Jordan and Barbara Eve Harris) and soon suspects that the rest might not be doing them all that good. It may be something to do with the young lad (Peter, played by Ethan Tobman) who is there to help them during their stay or it may be something to do with the mirrors that all seem to have electric wiring going into the back of them. As her parents start to appear to advance in years overnight, Danny knows that she must find out what's going on.
Written by Anne Appleton and directed by D. J. MacHale, this is much more quirky than creepy and reminded me a lot of the enjoyable Eerie, Indiana. Tobman is suitably off-kilter as Peter and King is just fine as the potential heroine of the piece.
It may fade as quickly as a Polaroid photo develops, but that doesn't mean that it's not worth seeing if you're a fan of the show or a fan of this type of show. While it may not be the scariest or the best episode, it's far from the worst.
